Timeform bring you three bets on Thursday.
"The son of Barefoot Bolt looks to have been handed fantastic claims of gaining an early advantage on the inside..."
Crayford's 16.37 is essentially a pretty ordinary affair over the midi distance of 540 metres, but on the back of a recent eye-catching effort, we think TRAPSTYLE SOLAR (Trap 1) could well represent some value. The son of Droopys Oscar has twice filled the runner-up spot in recent outings, bumping in to one very much at the top of its game on Saturday evening. We're hopeful Trapstyle Solar can utilise his position on the inside to his advantage, and hopefully kick us off with a success.
We head to Hove for today's second selection in the basement grade of A11 with SIMONS JAKE (Trap 2, 18.44) fancied to open his account for Maria Collins. The former Wimbledon raider, doesn't boast an impressive strike-rate, but is seemingly coming to the boil judged on recent C&D exploits, the most recent an agonising short-head defeat. The son of Barefoot Bolt looks to have been handed fantastic claims of gaining an early advantage on the inside, and whilst his stamina reserves will be ebbing away late in the day, he can hopefully have enough in reserve, to hold main danger and forecast play out wide Gambles Winner.
Newcastle's 19.27 features our final selection a P3 over the standard trip of 480 metres, with BRAMBLE TAYLOR (Trap 6) fancied to build on a cracking, albeit hard fought success in a standard A4 last week. The May 14' whelp, a son of Godsend clearly packs a strong finish as he's proved on a number of occasions, and whilst he may not be involved early, both his style and expected final time gives him strong claims of playing a lead role out wide, and all being well he can add to his tally.
